CRISPR tools in MacVector 18

If you are using CRISPR editing techniques then there are two useful functions in MacVector for you:

  • MacVector will scan Nucleic Acid sequences for Protospacer Adjacent Motifs (PAM) associated with the CRISPR Cas9 and related enzymes cleavage and modification functions.

  • MacVector’s Analyze | Align To Reference… tool is ideal for screening reads for the short insertions, deletions or substitutions resulting from CRISPR experiments. See our blog for more information.

Finding CRISPR Cas9 PAM sites.

  • Open your sequence.
  • Choose** Analyze | CRISPR PAM sites…**
  • click on the OK.

You can also use Scan DNA FOR.. tool to automatically show sites on all sequences.
